Wednesday July 18th, Moon?

Wow what a great sleep. Passed out at 9:30 ish and woke up at 4:30. I can’t wait to get outside and practice my Fitness Craze – An Anarchic Exercise. Spent the morning listening to “His Bobness” and writing.

This Web Site Is Moving To A Diary Format

The Diary of Dr. Do Lots. I’ve said about all I can say on the topics. It’s time to show people how to act.

July 16th, Monday, Moon? Stars?

Woke up at 3AM. Spent the first hour with Bob Dylan (Changing of The Guards, Jokerman and Hurricane). Sat down to write – how W. Somerset Maughamesque. 5:15 AM off to develop my Fitness Craze – An Anarchic Exercise. Going to Powell River on the 9:10 ferry back on the 3:45PM ferry.

A New Format For Dr. Do Lots

Up at 3:00 AM. Slow wakeup. Made it to the computer around 4:00. Messaged for over an hour with someone in Toronto – more like two hours? Remember going to the baseball field to workout and then cutting it short – felt exhausted. Grabbed a nap until 8:15, picked up at 8:30 for the ferry. Worked out/danced on the ferry. Walked to the hospital to deliver someone something.

You Don’t Have To Have A Plan

for the future. But you do have to develop a plan to destroy the past. Then the future will take care of itself.

Yes, yes try to get beyond the didactic criticism to the epiphany. Remember it was written by a mathematician.

From Zen and the Art of Motorcycle Maintenance’s explanation of¬†Poincare:

Mathematics, he said, isn’t merely a question of
applying rules, any more than science. It doesn’t
merely make the most combinations possible according
to certain fixed laws. The combinations so obtained
would be exceedingly numerous, useless and cumbersome.
The true work of the inventor consistes in choosing
among these combinations so as to eliminate the
useless ones, or rather, to avoid the trouble of
making them, and the rules that must guide the choice
are extremely fine and delicate. It’s almost
impossible  to state them precisely; they must be felt
rather than formulated.

Poincare then hypothesized that this selection is made
by what he called the “subliminal self,” an entity
that corresponds exactly with what Phaedrus called
preintellectual awareness. The subliminal self,
Poincare said, looks at a a large number of solutions
to a problem, but only the interesting ones break into
the domain of consciousness. Mathematical solutions
are selected by the subliminal self on the basis of
“mathematical beauty”, of the harmony of numbers and
forms, of geometric elegance. “This is a true esthetic
feeling which all mathematiicans know,” Poincare said,
“but of which the profane are so ignorant as often to
be tempted to smile.” But it is this harmony, this
beauty, that is at the center of it all.

Out (of the) House

It pays to get out of the house. TV is evil. The Internet is God. And any press is good press. Someone just gave this to me. Is it the start of a world wide promotional blitzkrieg?

I will be visiting the local MLA and the Service Canada office. This should be interesting. That’s an understatement it should be on YouTube. Last time I visited an MLA in Nanaimo he said I was being aggressive. I said he was being pathetic and what was his point?

No Brainers

Like why my company’s initial focus is on mental health. You don’t have to follow the money on this one – it is impossible to miss it.

Mental illness is linked to more lost work days than any other chronic condition, costing the Canadian economy $51 billion a year in lost productivity, a 2010 study shows.

So even with us getting 1/10th of 1% to fix this it equates to $51 million dollars a year.

No, Nothing, Party!

I’m smitten with Eminem’s “White Trash Party”. And I have been working hard at No Nothing Farm. And I’m thinking of starting a political party. I could call it the No Nothing Party. The Green Party is so limiting. I have always thought it stupid like waving to people on Texada Island when you’re driving. I really like No Nothing Party. I don’t think I need a press secretary.

Press: “Are you going to … ?

Me: “No”

Press: “What is your position on … ?”

Me: “Nothing”

Press: “What do you plan to do?”

Me: “Party!”

I could just rinse and repeat for every press conference. Politicians don’t do anything anyway.
